In this paper, we put the trade effect of the euro in historical perspective. Using a data set that includes 22 industrial countries from 1948 to 2003, we find strong evidence of a gradual increase in trade intensity between European countries over time. Once we control for this trend in trade integration, the euro's impact on trade disappears. Moreover, a significant part of the trend in European trade integration is associated with measurable policy changes in areas such as exchange rate… 
The Euro Effect on International Trade
Abstract In this paper we aim to perform a meta-analysis of 28 of the most recent studies regarding the European single currency effect on trade in order to determine, based on them, how significant
Trade effects of monetary agreements: Evidence for OECD countries
This paper analyses the effects of monetary agreements on trade flows using a sample of 25 OECD countries over the period 1950-2004. We find that these agreements have boosted intra-bloc trade. This
EMU impact of on third countries' exports: a gravity approach
In this article we explore the impact of the euro adoption and the effect of the volatility of the real exchange rate on trade both on intra EMU trade and on EMU trade with third countries. To this
Trade Integration and Business Cycle Synchronization in the Euro Area: The Case of Southern European Countries
This paper examines synchronization in the euro area and the role of intra-EMU trade from 1981 to 2011, focusing in particular on southern European countries. The results indicate that the
Trade Effects of the Euro Adoption by the EU New Member States
In this paper we estimate the trade effects of the euro adoption in countries that joined the European Union in 2004. We employ a generalized gravity model that controls for an extended set of trade
The Euro Effect on Trade is Not as Large as Commonly Thought
Existing studies on the impact of the euro on goods trade report increments between 5% and 40%. These estimates are based on standard panel gravity models for the level of trade. We show that the

This paper provides an update on estimates of the euro effect on trade integration among EMU economies, taking into account the aggregate bilateral exports of 23 OECD countries for the sample period
The Euro Effect on Trade is Not as Large as Commonly Thought
Existing studies on the impact of the euro on goods trade report increments between 5% and 40%. These estimates are based on standard panel gravity models for the level of trade. We show that the
Euro and Trade Flows in Central Europe
In this paper we estimate the trade effects of the euro adoption in Central European countries using a modified gravity model. In particular, we analyze the ex post implications of accession of
The effect of the Euro on the bilateral trade distribution

Has the Euro Increased Trade?
A major economic reason for the introduction of the euro was its supposedly positive effect on intra-EMU trade. Existing studies examine this suspicion indirectly using non-EMU data and report

The positive effect of a common currency on trade is empirically well-documented, but the reason of this effect remains unclear. In this paper, we argue that part of the currency union effect on
